Taqwa and Insight
Taqwa leads to clear-sightedness and insight as it is stated in the holy Qur’an:
…If you are wary of Allah, He shall appoint a criterion for you… (8:29)
This verse illustrates that insightfulness is among the important effects of taqwa and we can say that this has paved the way for the mystic journey.
Taqwa and Deliverance
The other effect of taqwa is that the one who has it can get himself out of predicaments and hardships. The Qur’an says:
…And whoever is wary of Allah, He shall make a way out for him and provide for him from whence he does not reckon. And whoever puts his trust in Allah, He will suffice him. Indeed Allah carries through His command. Certainly Allah has set a measure for everything. (65: 2-3)
